Man Utd and Barcelona agree fee for De Jong

Manchester United have reached an agreement with Barcelona over a fee for Frenkie de Jong.

United have been locked in negotiations with Barcelona for weeks, and appear to have finally made a breakthrough.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports the Red Devils have agreed to pay an initial £56m for the midfielder.

He claims that the "full package" will rise to £74m after add-ons.

ESPN says the exact nature of the performance-based add-ons are yet to be fully agreed.

Personal terms are also still to settled upon, with talks to continue this week.
